That sounds like a good idea, maybe then folks would keep their kettering
systems (along with a Mark 10) instead of going Pertronix,
Which in of itself isn’t a bad idea..  except for quality control.

I probably don’t have a fully accurate understanding of it either!

Something I've been hoping to do at the next Invasion, whenever that is, is
to prepare sketches to explain how the standard Kettering (points & coil)
ignition system works. I suspect most people simply accept it as a "black
box" and almost nothing I read on it anywhere gets it completely right.

I think/hope I can explain it well enough that anyone who wants to, can
understand it.

Any interest out there?
